Yes, 11 months is fine. You can still use formula when you make cereal, but starting on cows milk at this age shouldn't cause any allergies.

11 mo is not too early. Have you tried cheese or yogurt or other dairy yet? If she handles that alright, you should be fine. All three of mine self weaned from the breast at about 9-10 mo and two of them hated formula, would not drink it, any kind. So I started cows milk early and they are both fine, no allergies. Not every kid is that way, but starting early is no gaurantee of a problem.

i started mixing whole milk half and half with formula at nine months with my daughter. took her off formula completely at ten months, and just have her regular whole milk, soy milk, or almond milk. she had no problems.
